    We do the grading, seeding and landscaping for a builder the problem is when we get alot of rain,like we've had everything turns to pig slop and if they have a final coming up they need to have the lawn finished just wondering what everyone else does in this situation. I have Harley rake,kubota loader etc all the equip to do the job just cant figure out how to handle the mud. any help would be appreciated.

    I hear you, around here its so wet that some of the plants are falling over because the ground is to wet to even walk on let alone use equipment.

    most times they dont have their part done until the last minute then we have to get it done before final inspection, not a problem jumping through hoops if its dry. you know how it works were the last guys on the job got to get it done now. to them the word wait doesnt exist.:dizzy:

    You have to wait until the ground is reasonably stable. unless quality is no issue..
